I like the concept, don't know about the required table space!

Want to give a shout-out to catdaddy for helping me thru my first OCTGN match last night. Appreciate the tutorial and the direction. Enjoyed the discussion with those who spectated as well. Looking forward to many matches on OCTGN.

Well jinxing or nullifying them is way cheaper on the MANA and SBP cost and basically gets you the same effect.

Excellent point! I'll have to give that some thought!

That is a killer idea. No pun intended.

I also noticed you have force hold anchor. With all your wizard tricks, don't think you need them. I would spend the points on
1 whirling spirit
And 1 dissolve.

I did debate on this as a secondary strategy as well. In the event my opponent actually gives me the opportunity to set up a kill zone, thought these two cards would come in handy. But, I do like the idea of a second whirling spirit. Damn all these choices!!!

I think something more like this
Arcane ring crystal
Leaves at a ton of MANA and lots of options. From there bring out whatever elemental you will want based on the matchup.

Yeah, I considered that scenario as well. It will be one of those two openings. Either way, it will be a ton of mana as you say and It'll be fun watching my opponent squirm.

Interestingly enough, you both point out 1 thing I couldn't decide on:

1. I wasn't sure if the value of having both Gloves of Skill and Akiro's Favor was worth the sbp. I agree, I think I can remove AF and replace with something else.

2. I really struggled with replacing a fire elemental with a second water elemental. The deciding factor for me came down to theme and fun. I think it will work for a casual game on the local scene. Something more serious, and I might gladly replace the fire elemental.

3. Really struggling with equipment and Battle Forge. I'm going to keep it in for now and see if/how it gets used.

My opening goal is:

1. crystal x2 
2. crystal x2
3. Earth elemental + FD enchantment
4. Water elemental
5. Whirling Spirit + FD enchantment

3 of the 4 elementals out by turn 5. Thoughts?

There isn't an "if" in mage wars that can't be countered. In general I'm happy to let my OPPO ent react to me.

This tends to be my play-style as well. I like to set the pace and have others react to me. My take on this is if my opponent is dispelling they're not attacking. And if I'm dissolving and dispelling I'm NOT attacking. Not to say there isn't an appropriate time/situation for dispelling and dissolving. I just find I'd rather hit my opponent hard turn after turn if possible and let him react and bonus if he uses non-attack actions in response.

Maybe once I branch out and actually start playing the pros in OCTGN who post here regularly and win tournaments I'll change my tune, but this has worked very well against my local play-group. They have a tendency to turtle and try to build-up, so I like to rush and hit fast leaving them surprised and on the run.

By the way, really like your book- it looks like a lot of fun to play!

Was chatting with reddicediaries about the idea of an elemental wizard. He pointed me to some previous examples. I know this concept isn't new, but thought I would post my iteration for critique. My one concern: too much equipment?

I have also recently restarted playing. So far new books only, so I also need some who can teach me and play casual games.
Is there a Facebook group or similar to use to find players  and agree upon time slot?

I belong in ^this category- needing to get that first OCTGN game under my belt for the sake of learning OCTGN. Also prefer to schedule game sessions as I'm not able to be as spontaneous with my schedule as I'd like.

Open invitation to all: PM me if interested in scheduling a game in OCTGN. I'm CST. And yes, it would be a learning game, so there's that.

General Discussion / Fire Retardant-Siren
« on: February 19, 2017, 10:46:47 PM »
So, just taking a moment to step up on my soapbox- played against a Siren today. My Warlock piled on a total of 9 burn markers throughout the course of the game, and in all 9 instances, my opponent rolled blanks removing said burn markers. Guess it was thematic with it being against a water mage. In the end, my Warlock still burnt her to a crisp so all is still well in my little world of Mage Wars.

Strategy and Tactics / Re: Domination: Anyone ever use the V'Torrak?
« on: February 19, 2017, 10:42:26 PM »
We've never used it either. What iNano said- it's difficult enough maintaining control of a zone. Plus, I'm not sacrificing the one resource required to win. In our Domination games, victory usually comes by way of one point in almost every game.

"Ravepig"  If you do not already found them...
I'll post them here as well ;)

Like these! I'd love to see the Druid wheelhouse expanded.

Well, you definitely have me excited to play a Frostwitch. What new plant creature ideas have you come up with?

Can any Ambassadors give an idea of how long to expect a response on an Ambassador Application? The website says 5 business days but it's been three weeks since I submitted the application and my email.

I'm not in a rush, just wondering what others have experienced.

I just became an ambassador last month. I think it took about 4 months from the time I submitted my application. I wasn't in any hurry though so it's all good.
